“Pele was one of the few who contradicted my theory: instead of 15 minutes of fame, he will have 15 centuries.”
- Andy Warhol
Pelé: Art, Life, Football at the National Football Museum looks at various stages of the Brazilian icon's life; from Santos to New York via four World Cups, through the eyes of artists and photographers around the world.
In addition to a superb collection of art inspired by arguably the greatest player of all time, the National Football Museum has brought together iconic items from our own collection and those owned by private collectors to illustrate the life and career of Pelé.
The exhibition runs until 4 March 2018.
